Exam weeks are my easiest weeks of the school year. We have them after after quarter and they are 30% of the final grade. We leave at 11:00am, and normally we leave school at 1:50. There is extra grading involved, but it is almost enjoyable because I don't have to plan or deal with behavior issues. Today the directors went around to check our classroom set up in case a strong earthquake happens during school. My classroom has tons of windows and I am now not allowed to have anyone sitting too close the the windows because they can easily shatter. Last night there was another earthquake. I was about to fall asleep when I heard a the windows start to rattle and the wood of my bed start to creak. I jumped down from the top bunk to the floor with world record speed, but the tremor had stopped by the time I was down. Marina and I huddled together in her bed until we prayed and decided that there wouldn't be anymore shaking.
